Welcome back to school for a fun packed Spring term.

We hope you have had a lovely time over the holidays and are ready for some more learning.


We start off with our new whole school topic of ‘Amazing Animals’.

We will be finding out all about animals, how and where they live and what they need to survive. We begin by making food for hungry birds in the Winter and finish with a trip to the zoo. So exciting stuff!

Don’t forget that PE lessons on a Tuesday means that you need to come dressed ready and that everything needs to have your name on it (including your shoes).


We will be continuing with our phonics everyday but remember to bring your phonics folder in on a Monday morning ready for the new sheets for the week. A little bit of practise every day will really help you learn the new sounds.

Your diary needs to come into school every day, with your reading book if you have one.


We are all looking forward to a busy Spring term ahead!

Kind Regards

Mrs Eyre, Mrs Richardson & Mrs Griffiths
